May 16, 2006
Youth Planning and Development

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA - Three teens and one adult received 2006 Outstanding Youth Awards at a May 11 ceremony at L.C. Bird High School. The annual awards program recognizes youths who have made differences in others' lives, in the community or at school, and adults who work to improve the lives of young people. This year's award winners were as follows: • Jamie Colgin, a student at L.C. Bird High School, was recognized for her courage. Colgin was described as someone who overcame both physical and emotional injuries following a car crash and, in doing so, inspired many people. Colgin also maintains an "A" average and volunteers her time to community service projects. • Heather Walters, a student at Falling Creek Middle School, was recognized for her compassion. As a volunteer with Congregations Around Richmond Involved to Assure Shelter, or CARITAS, Walters writes up to 40 different inspirational and uplifting notes by hand to be included in the lunch bags that CARITAS hands out daily to the homeless. • Carl Timperio III, a student at Thomas Dale High School, was recognized for his service. For his Eagle Scout project, Timperio constructed a 17th-century Powhatan Indian dwelling at Henricus Historical Park that will be used to educate more than 13,000 park visitors yearly. • Patricia Lancaster, an assistant principal at Manchester High School, received the Outstanding Service to Youth Award for her fortitude, sensitivity and service. As an educator, club sponsor and administrator for Chesterfield County Public Schools, Lancaster has devoted 34 years to educating, nurturing and empowering youths to reach their maximum potentials. Fourteen adults and 63 youths were nominated for this year's Outstanding Youth Awards. The annual awards program is sponsored by the Chesterfield County Department of Youth Planning and Development, Youth Services Citizen Board and Midlothian Kiwanis Club.
